Handcrafted Modern: Europe!

One of our absolute favorite design books is Handcrafted Modern done by photographer Leslie Williamson. Granted full access to photograph as she desired, Williamson's book showcased beautifully intimate photographs featuring the homes and work spaces of fourteen design legends including: Wharton Esherick, George Nakashima, Harry Bertoia, Russel Wright, Jens Risom, Eva Zeilsel, Vladimir Kagan, Irving Harper, Walter Gropius, Jerome & Evelyn Ackerman, Charles & Ray Eames, J.B. Blunk, John Kapel, and Albert Frey. The images are stunning and the interiors are truly inspiring.

Now Leslie is working on the European edition, featuring design legends from across the pond including Alvor Aalto's home (seen above).  We've gotten a sneak peek and trust us when we say this book could possibly surpass the original as far as it's beauty and substance. Leslie has worked passionately over the past few years on this project, but now she needs all of our help to reach the finish line. We want to do whatever we can to make this book a reality not only to see it's completion, but also to honor and record these historic places.  Leslie has started a kickstarter campaign and together, there's no doubt we can make this project a reality.  To learn more watch the video below and then click here to see how you can contribute. Thanks for your help!
